This market continues on a weekly basis every Thursday and offers a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town as well as the many 17th and 18th Century buildings. The picturesque Lune Valley was popular with the artist Turner and is host to the medieval Devil's Bridge that spans the river.

Wonderful place.. So relaxing
Mrs Payne
October 2018
This is cracking cottage.. Very peaceful in the country but yet only short drive to Kirby Lonsdale. Cottage had everthing we needed. Open fire in the living room made the nights cosy. Would come again....
Mrs Gibb
July 2018
Property was looking a tad tired and in need of decoration.. We were not aware that the dining room window looked directly into the cottage behind ours. Very off putting when eating meals. The kitchen was also overlooked but had a net curtain at the window. The kitchen and bathroom were spotless, but other rooms could do with being given the same level of dusting. The garden was sadly quite neglected, and several shrubs and plants were in need off a good chop and tidy. There was no welcome pack, and this was the first cottage we have stayed in were there was no hairdryer. That said, the cottage is in a lovely place and we did have a relaxing holiday. It was also very kind and much appreciated that they let us bring a second dog.

Fleshbeck Cottage was everything we hoped it would be.. There was nothing that wasn’t included that we would have expected. Excellent facilities and WiFi was great. The local area was beautiful with great things to see. Had an excellent meal in The Snooty Fox well worth a visit. Lovely local shops too. Definitely somewhere is would return to. Thank you x

The cottage was great for a romantic weekend in the sticks.. Nearby Kirkby Lonsdale was a nice little town.
Mr Nichols
March 2018
The cottage was in a lovely spot, very peaceful.. It was very clean & had just about everything you would need & being able to take the dog was a bonus, lovely little enclosed garden. However 3 things we felt let it down, there is no heat in the bathroom or bedrooms( there are plug in heaters in bedrooms so not such a problem),but it would have been nice to have somewhere to dry towels. On our first night we were cold, as the storage heater on landing didn't seem to come on till early morning. In the lounge there is a plug in heater, but without lighting the fire that is totally inadequate in the winter. The storage heater in dining room hardly felt warm. There is also just a plug in heater in kitchen. Thirdly it would have been nice to have proper sized bath towels. We did enjoy our stay & the cottage is obviously loved & well cared for, but I think you would struggle to be warm enough had the weather been snowing & frosty.
Mr Owen
February 2018
Great location for getting away from it all and close enough to Kirby Lonsdale to easily get extra provisions if needed.. Beautiful scenery and very quiet. In the cottage itself managed a couple of roaring fires, comfortable sofas and beds and no Wi-Fi issues with four I-pads on the go. Great short-stay and good value.
Mrs Darcy
February 2018
I think this is the fifth time we have booked this cottage and it is always a great pleasure to stay here.. The enclosed garden is perfect for our dog and the public footpath across the road provides a super walk, with fabulous views.

A real escape to the country, this old farmhouse offers an ideal location. It's just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park and a short drive from the Lake District National Park, and minutes from historic Kirkby Lonsdale. So there's a little bit of something for everyone, and a lot of spectacular scenery! Owners, Mal and Angie, live just up the road. They're charming hosts; they couldn't do enough to make our stay more enjoyable.
Mrs Darcy
December 2017
The cottage is perfect for us because it is near Kirkby Lonsdale, which is lovely anyway, and we have family there.. The cottage has an enclosed garden which is really good for my dog. It is also a really quiet location, with nice walks.
Mrs Darcy
December 2017
Third time at this cottage.. Enclosed garden perfect for the dog, very quiet location. Well equipped, bucket of coal and logs to light the range - very cosy. Near to Kirkby Lonsdale which is particularly lovely at Christmas.

Advertised as having WiFi but extremely poor throughout the entire house- may be worth mentioning..
Bryan B
October 2017
Handily located for the Western section of the Dales, only a short drive into Kirkby Lonsdale and then good access for the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. Comfortable cottage with off road parking. Only reason that it doesn't get a 5 star is the lack of local walks from the door ( footpath opposite has a locked gate, difficult to access if you have a dog), a clothes horse would have been nice, there is a washer/dryer but not suitable for walking tops etc. Kitchen is a bit sparsely equipped, no scissors or baking tray and the smallest dinner plates I've ever seen. No instruction/welcome pack and no visitors book which personally I like to see.
Mrs Darcy
May 2017
The location was stunning, the garden was better than I expected as it was enclosed, making it safe for my (small) dog.. The locals walks were fabulous, with amazing views. Will definitely book again.
Mr Guy
July 2016
Fleshbeck Cottage was very clean and with everything you need. Owners very contactable of you have a problem. Enclosed garden great for dogs and very peaceful relaxing time. Would highly recommend and great value. Well done to the owner for making our stay so comfortable and relaxing.
Mr Crwys-williams
July 2016
It was exactly as described; very clean and organised, very well equipped and in excellent condition. It had a good shower, very helpful owners and a splendid small enclosed garden. It is in a nice quiet location. Really good value for money.
Mr Alba
June 2016
A lovely cottage located in beautiful countryside, with easy access to nice walks and to the local small town. The cottage was very clean and tidy with fully functioning facilities. The owners were very pleasant and responsive if we had any requests and clearly cared very much about the cottage.
Mr Beard
February 2016
This is the second time we have been to Fleshbeck Cottage. We love the peace and quiet and the fact we can take the dog. The setting is perfect and the views are amazing.
Mr Ogden
November 2015
The period Cottage is cosy and has a fantastic fireplace, just perfect for those wintery evenings. This property is also dog friendly and is highly recommended.
Mr Dean
March 2015
Fleshbeck cottage is set in a lovely rural location. If you want peace and quiet and not to be disturbed, then this is the place. The cottage is comfortable and the fire stove is excellent and a real roaring fire can be enjoyed. The garden is lovely and you can sit outside comfortably and hear nothing but the birds.
Mr Vliegen
January 2015
The surroundings are great. It's a perfect base to spend time in both areas; Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Kirkby Lonsdale is very nice village with a lot of facilities and nice shops. There is not much written about this village but it's definitely undervalued. The cottage is in a very good condition. We were very glad that pets were allowed. I can very recommend this cottage to anyone who likes to spend the holidays in a quiet neighbourhood.
Ms Robinson
June 2014
Cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. Nice clean white bedding. Kitchen well equipped and clean. Nice walled garden, as we had a small dog with us. The cottage is set in lovely scenery - whichever way you look.
Mrs Haynes
May 2014
Had a lovely week, really happy with the cottage would certainly be more than happy to return.
Ms Atkins
February 2014
We thought that the cottage was very spacious and warm upon arrival. It was well equipped and we all enjoyed the powerful hot showers. We especially loved the character features in the cottage like the windows and the range/ fire in the living room. The cottage location is great for visits to the Lakes and Lancs/Yorkshire. It was good to have the fire starter pack until we got our bearings and found where to buy wood etc.
Mr Goodwin
November 2013
A beautiful cosy cottage.
Mrs Kent
October 2013
Location quite remote, but beautiful setting and great for dog walks straight from the door. Cottage is beautiful and well maintained and equipped. Much bigger than it looks in the photographs which don't do it justice! Was really comfortable and cosy. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again.
Mrs Sarah Camish
October 2013
A beautiful location, and a well equipped property finished to a high standard. It felt like a home from home.
Mrs Smith
September 2013
It was the perfect place to unwind and relax, close to all areas of interest and in an absolutely beautiful setting.
Mr O'brien
September 2013
Owners very friendly and helpful. Accommodation to a tasteful, high standard and well maintained. Kirkby Lonsdale is located approx 3 miles away and has various facilities i.e. shops, eating, pubs and walks around the River Lune / Lune Valley. The Orange Tree has a very good selection of local ales courtesy the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery. I cannot review our holiday without a mention for the Jingling Lane Traditional Fish and Chip Shop....lovely! Overall we had a lovely week, and would like to return next year.

My partner and I along with our dog have just returned from a lovely stay at Fleshbeck Cottage. Although I have completed a review on the Sykes Cottages web site I wanted to ensure this place gets even more positive exposure! Although the weather wasn't particularly kind we still managed to enjoy our break. The cottage is set in a beautiful and tranquil location approximately 3 miles north of Kirkby Lonsdale, which is a lovely and charming market town. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and has a mix of modern and traditional. The bathroom has recently been upgraded and sports a lovely bath/shower. The kitchen is spacious and modern and is complimented with a separate dinning area. The living room is cosy and has a lovely range fireplace and although it rained we didn't need to use it. Both bedrooms were clean and tidy ensuring we had a good night's sleep. The location is ideal for the Lancashire coast, South Lakes and Yorkshire Dales. In addition there are several small market towns to visit close by. Sedbergh has a plethora of bookshops (good for a rainy day), Kikrkby Lonsdale plays host to some nice shops and eateries including the Orange Tree pub, complete with Local ales supplied by the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery, the Jingling Lane traditional Fish and Chip shop and The Caraid coffee shop, which like many places is dog friendly. Last but not least is the Kittridding Farm Shop, who supply a lot of local produce....I recommend their homemade chesse scones!! The owners of the cottage Mal and Angie stopped by to ensure everything was ok. Hopefully 2014 will see us returning to the area.

With the cottage being well-situated, it was easy to travel to a number of local destinations. The cottage also felt very modern and clean. Although we had no immediate neighbours, any people we met were very friendly. It was also very nice of the owners to pay us a visit to check that everything was to our satisfaction.
Mr Quinn
April 2013
We had a good relaxing break, in a quiet location. Liked the fact the owner only called once to check all was well. The pictures were good, but did not do the place justice. We will go back.
Mrs Nichols

Enjoyed the log fires. The location was great for Kirkby Lonsdale. The shops are very individual with nice things to buy and eat. The cottage is also handy for visiting the Lakes, 30 mins from Kendal.

This cottage ticks all the boxes. Two bedroom, log fire as well as central heating. Peaceful (apart from the odd tractor going past and a wierd generator-type noise from next door). Small but adequate bathroom with a really powerful shower. The only criticisms I have is that although it's fairly clean, it did smell of dog and there were dog hairs on the carpets in the living room and the double bedroom. There were also one or two on the bed which made me wonder if they had actually changed the sheets. The bed didn't smell of dog so maybe they were on someone's clothes whilst they changed the sheets. The owners have several properties to clean and I don't think that they gave themselves enough time before we checked in. Overall, I would stay here again because it had everything we needed and the location is really good because it's a convenient drive both to the Lakes and the Dales. Kirkby Lonsdale is a lovely town too. I might bring my own sheets and towels next time because they charge for bath sheets. (They do provide towels). Older travellers might like to know that the staircase has a lot of stairs and they are quite steep. This made it tough to carry our suitcases upstairs. My elderly mum had to get up several times to go to the toilet in the night and the bathroom door makes quite a loud clattering noise and it is tricky to close. It is a lovely old cottage so you have to expect these things with wonky floorboards. I found it quite charming but it's not for everyone.

Totally relaxing - lovely countryside.
Mrs Sharpe

Fleshbeck Cottage was very homely and comfortable throughout. We have never had such a comfortable bed during a cottage holiday! The situation of the cottage was lovely and quiet. We had our reservations when we booked with it being semi-detached, but we didn't notice any noise from the adjoining property. The owner introduced himself and checked that everything was OK during our stay, which it was, no complaints whatsoever. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week which was enhanced by such a lovely 'home from home' cottage. We would definitely return for another holiday and would highly recommend it to friends and family. Thank you.

Stunning, secluded location, great views. Peaceful and quiet. Cozy and characterful cottage, comfortably furnished with some nice antique pieces to reflect the age of the property, very homely. Loved the fireplace and so did the dogs! Xmas tree and decorations were a lovely touch. Owners friendly and accommodating. Beautiful surrounding area with quaint villages and towns. Good pubs and tea rooms, very dog friendly area.

Friendly owners, cottage with character, lovely bedrooms and bathroom. Kirby Lonsdale has good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Easy access to Dales and Lakes with loads to see and do. Recommend White Scar Caves, Ingleborough, Kyaking on Windermere, Lancaster Castle and walking around Buttermere.

Owners who are very nice people. My kids loved the house which although beamed, had very high ceilings. We liked the peace and quiet. Walks with dog to see cows and sheep nearby. Kirkby Lonsdale is a lovely town, very pretty. A good jump off to the Lakes.

We thought that the location of the cottage was excellent. The cottage itself was cosy, full of character and we particulaly liked the open range in the sitting room. This has been the fourth time we have used Sykes to book a self catering cottage and every time we have been very satisfied with the standard and location of all the properties we have stayed in.
